In this lesson, you have learned about the Holocaust—the Nazi mass murder of 6,000,000 Jews and 5,000,000 others during World War II.
Directions: Imagine yourself as one of the children in the liberation photograph. Complete the three paragraphs as a first-person narrative from his or her point of view.
Paragraph 1: Why were you persecuted?
Paragraph 2: Where did you go? Describe your experience at the camp. What happened to your family? How did the United States respond to your experience?
Paragraph 3: What will your future bring? Predict what you think will happen to you now that you have been liberated. How has the world changed since your imprisonment? How have you changed?
In your narrative, be sure to:
recount historical facts accurately
use course terms when appropriate
cite any outside sources
